Lunch Money Stealing Monkeys

There's been a lot going on these days, namely because Prachuap has a lot of native English speakers so I've been hanging out with the Kool kids so to speak. (^: No, but I've been hanging out with the English speaking friends a lot. Mostly, we've been doing field service, distant calls through the lovely…

Rain, Rain, Go Away…

It all started hot. And by "all" I mean just the day. The day started so hot that I was kind of a little sweaty. It surprised me because Ko Samui was supposedly hotter (according to my weather app, anyway) but I didn't feel it was as humid as that before. The territory was nice,…

Small World

Before I begin today's post, I forgot to mention... my tally of how many people have asked to take pictures with me has increased. It was four Chinese tourists, on the same train that I was taking to Prachuap Khiri Khan. Hm. Anyway, so that's +4, bringing my total to 12. My other tally for…

Last Day in Ko Samui

So I already talked about my last day on the island in my last post so this will be a conclusion post as far as that. Really, I just want to wrap up some last minute interesting things that I saw. First up? Lunchtime indoors. Basically, most malls have a food court. Just like the…

Off Day, Soft Day

So... Monday was my off day-- I didn't do much. In the morning I went to the movies but I forgot to check the language so it was in Thai. While there, there were some kids playing there in the theatre lobby. I couldn't really understand them, but the way they were playing, I couldn't…

Meeting Day

So yesterday, I went to my first meeting with the local congregation. I say local, but this is the only one on the island! Haha. The topic for yesterday's Watchtower was a little bit complex, so I only prepared two comments. It was nerve-racking, preparing to comment, mainly because I realized that I didn't know…

“Pûut paa-sǎa anggrìt dâai!”

Yesterday was crazy eventful. When I came to the group, everyone who was there I met yesterday so I was pretty glad about that because I could remember the names. There's Yungsik, his wife Jaehee, Ikko, Maki and... Maki. By some miracle, there are actually 4 Japanese sisters named Maki/Makiko supporting the congregation here. (What're…

Field Service Day!

No, unfortunately I didn't get to speak anyone today. I did prepare my presentation, and I was ready but... let me jump into the story. So at our first door, there was a deaf woman.  Surprisingly, I could kind of understand their conversation. I said their, because yes. Maki did whip out some random Thai…

And so the tally begins.

"How many black American girls will I see in Thailand this time?" It's something I thought about tallying but today's the day that I actually want to start. Or rather, this is the trip I'm actually going to start. So far, I've only seen one in the airport so that makes it.... one. I think…
